Resources and Non-Exhaustive Reading List

We center Equity and Inclusion in all of our efforts as an organization to confront and disrupt biases, stereotypes, and discrimination, and combat systemic racism and anti-blackness. We put together a non-exhaustive list of resources including live discussions, videos, books, organizations, profiles, and articles, that we listened to, read, followed, and discussed as a team.

Please reach out to us if you have any feedback/comments or if you have any additional resources to recommend!
